, but decisive win over republican rival mitt romney. here is with a look how he did it. dan henninger, and jason riley and washington columnist kim strassel. start with you, when you get a defeat like this, there's no one thing necessarily that explains it. but why don't you pick out your most important? >> look, i think there were two things key to the obama victory, one was that very ol on, they ran this very high dollar attack campaign against mitt romney, a bit of a character assassination throughout the summer and mitt romney didn't respond to it and he didn't recover from it. when you combine that with the president's brutally efficient, we now know turnout operation in core states like ohio, virginia and florida, popular vote pretty close in the end. in the end he got out the partisans in much the same numbers in 2008 and that's what won it for him. >> paul: so, kim, you're saying that's about 100 million dollars or more that the obama campaign poured on mitt romney on bain capital on his tax returns on the fact that he's a pluto kratt, and making him to be gordon gecko without the social
wanted romney to denounce it. women wanted the party to denounce it, and romney never came out to denounce it. bottom line is this -- we played it too safe, we didn't think women were monolithic voters or cared about the economy, but when it comes to legitimate rape and abortion, women stood together. >> i wish that's all it was, really, but the whole year, particularly when republicans took over so many state legislators, that's when the war on women, if you forgive me, began. you had record numbers of anti-contraceptive and and antiabortion laws, even a tax on equal pay laws, the congress with the blunt amendment on where they actually had a vote on whether or not insurance policies ought to include contraception if theoss is in disagreement. so you can talk messenger all you want to or two members who clearly revealed the rubbish in the republican party, but, let's face it, women had a whole year, and then they had the republican primary to see it big and bold -- all anti-woman, personhood -- all the things the majority of the women are clearly not for. >> okay, but let me a

to take a job with the romney administration. he had been plotting that move behind president obama's back and the disloyalty was the reason he had to go. there was speculation he would have to step down because of something related to the benghazi consulate attack which he was scheduled to testify about next week before congress. before this was a reportable story and we knew for sure that he was going and why, the theories and the breathless speculation about why david petraeus was resigning from the cia went all the way up to and included the idea that maybe he was stepping down to start running as a republican for president in 2016 right now. until we knew what happened, people were crawling up the walls about this announcement from david petraeus today. and then andrea broke the story. and david petraeus it turns out, is leaving the cia because he had an extramarital affair. it was a personal matter. just an unbelievable news day today. joining us now is andrea mitchell. nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent and the host of msnbc's "andrea mitchell reports." congratulations on thi

president obama and mitt romney were crying but for different reasons. president obama got emotional when talking to his staff and how hard they had worked. let's watch that. >> obama: even before last night's results i felt that the work that i had done in running for office had come full circle. because what you guys have done means that the work that i'm doing is important. and i'm really proud of that. i'm really proud of all of you. [applause] >> cenk: that's obviously staged. what a politician. i'm kidding. i'm kidding okay. then mitt romney was of course crying for over reasons. but what is amazing is that apparently they didn't see it coming. they really thought they were going to win. there's a report out from cbs. let me give you a quote. says we went into the evening one of the top advisers said, confident that we had a good path of victory. i don't think there was one person who saw this coming. that's amazing! at best it was going to be an incredibly close victory for the romney campaign. how could no one anticipate that they might possibly lose. that's unbelievable! let's br

from a reporter asking me if mitt romney lost because of talk radio and the tea party. and whether the g.o.p. had to soften its views to appeal to women and to latinos. funny, the media pushed that same narrative after the g.o.p.'s 2006 midterm wipeout and after mccain's 2008 loss to obama. let me just tell you, if anything mitt romney distanced himself from much of the talk radio world. he made only 3 brief appearances on my radio show over the past year. and his campaign was lived when i had the nerve to ask the governor, whom i endorsed by the way in 2008, how he planned to win the the economy showed signs of improvement. the fact is, talk radio continues to thrive. while moderate republics like john mccain and to some extent mitt romney continue to lose presidential elections. and while the tea party has backed some terrible candidates. richard murdock, todd akin and christine o'donnell, it also made the 2010 g.o.p. route possible. grass roots conservatives helped elect senators marco rubio in florida. ted crews in texas and this time deb fisher in that nebraska senate race. wh
the race and put romney back with and range. obama was able to stabilize at the end. but romney presented himself as an acceptable alternative. romney was able to walk over the threshold. in the end, he never addressed the demographic challenge. and the third debate he went back on some of the language. he talked about amnesty and deportation and basically ensured that number among hispanics. barack obama increased its share of votes among hispanics. that is a statement more about the republican party than the democratic party. >> that is not two waves. one was out of the democratic convention. that was a surge for the democrats. the second was a chance for the challenger to put himself on the stage. i think people were talking about romney's momentum. he got back in the race. he got stuck at a point where he could not go any further. >> let's go to this part of the room. let's go here. >> u.s. news and world report. it seems the coalition was unable biunique elements of this election. he have the bain background. how will they try to recreate the coalition? >> great question. a year ago,

that. mitt romney encouraged employers to do that. in terms of citizens united, first of all going back to the earlier case, i will never agree with the proposition that money is speech. speech is speech. like what mitt romney said -- corporations are people. no, corporations are corporations and speech is speech. money is intended as a correction of the political process. >> let's give a hand to david.
